My esteem for Ryan O’Neal takes another hit after reading in Vanity Fair the actor who personified love is never having to say you’re sorry , failed to recognize and then propositioned his estranged daughter, Academy Award winning actress Tatum O’Neal, at the funeral of his long-time companion Farrah Fawcett . O’Neal also tells writer Leslie Bennets he dumped Farrah when she hit menopause, "I believe Farrah was going through some kind of life change," O’Neal says, "But they’re hard work, these divas; I was sick of it."
